Two years ago I went for a vacation on Madeira (you can find some impressions in german here & the galleries here and here) and absolutely fell in love with the island. For those who might not be sure where it is, it is a small island in the Atlantic Ocean near Africa but belongs to Portugal (it was discovered in 1419 by Portuguese adventurers). The island was created due to active volcanos – so its got a very rough look to it but this also causes it to have ample vegetation.
Last time I had my trusty Canon with me but this time of course I took the Fuji X-E2, which was my first serious test case of multiple days of shooting (or rather non stop shooting for two weeks) and it performed incredibly well and when we went for a walk from 1,600m up to over 1,800m I was glad for every gram of gear I wasn’t carrying!
I’ll probably be posting more in-depth posts about the individual days of the trip (we alternated between days of activity and days of lying at the pool) but for now I wanted to share links to the images with you and show some of my favorites. As the galleries show, I haven’t been able to really narrow it down.

My catch all album for the different gardens we visited, a lot of images but very diverse!
